One of the largest Viking axes ever found has been uncovered by a team of archaeologists from Denmark. The impressive weapon was buried in the tomb of a powerful couple from the local Viking community.The discovery took place back in 2012, during construction works to create a new highway in Denmark, in the southern region of Harup.
The workers stumbled upon a tomb – a type known as a ‘death house’ – measuring roughly 3.9 metres (13 feet) by 12.8 metres (42 feet). Built around 950 AD it contained three separate graves.
